Forehead wrinkles come for everyone. Days of worry, stress, frowning, and daily sun damage have likely left you with fine lines you just can’t shake. But don’t fret – there’s a cure or two out there for everyone and every skin type.
This spring you can walk out with a fresh face (and without forehead wrinkles) without breaking the bank, and the process is as easy as choosing the right products and processes.
Before you even consider foundation or concealers, be sure you are using a makeup primer. A light-reflecting primer helps hide forehead wrinkles and fine lines. The primer helps keep makeup particles and dust from settling into the cracks of your forehead wrinkles, which will emphasize their appearance.
When you apply your daily makeup, avoid using too much powder on any wrinkled area. Forehead wrinkles are especially susceptible to makeup debris, and powdered products will easily seep into the creases. Stick with cream-based foundations and highlighters and avoid the powder all together, and to help reduce the appearance of your forehead wrinkles.
Look for products with peptides and retinol. These ingredients will help stimulate collagen, which plumps the skin. Filling forehead wrinkles is as often as easy as choosing the best product for your skin type (such as our Erase Cosmetics 3 Minute Face Lift). You may also want to look for specific day and night formulas to be sure you are gaining ultimate results.
Bangs are making a comeback this spring and are an easy, inexpensive way to hide those pesky forehead wrinkles. You don’t have to choose a blunt, bold cut either. You can use a soft, feathered bang that are easily styled or pulled back when necessary. If you’ve never been a bang wearer, just check with your stylist for the best cut and design – we promise you won’t be disappointed.
One of the easiest ways to maintain your forehead wrinkles it to DIY your own mask. Honey and tomato are one of our favorite masks, and only needs to be repeated about 3 times per week. Honey is rich in anti-oxidants and tomatoes are also rich in vitamin C and other vital nutrients that help reduce forehead wrinkles. All you need is 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tomato and a blender. Blend the tomato and mix in honey before applying the mask to your forehead. Leave on for 25 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
There are simple daily face movements you can practice that will help reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles. Some even call it “face yoga”, however the idea is simple – training the muscles in your face to react in a way that prevents fine lines from surfacing. Gently grip your brow-bone with your thumb and while holding on loosely, raise your eyebrows up. Use your available fingers to push down your eyebrows while resisting the pull of your skin. Repeat 10 times per day for maximum results.
